What am I using?

I don’t think I’m any different to most other radio amateurs, so the equipment flow is varying all the time. Radios in, radios out, antennas up and antennas down – intentionally or not.. Just look at the 2012 field day picture..

I’ve had numerous HF rigs, both large and small, good and bad. I still haven’t settled on a specific brand or type of radio (I probably shouldn’t either), but somehow it tends to be Yaesu rigs I end up with. As with women, cars and computers, they have to be swapped for something newer at some point..

Current list of devices is as follows:

HF and combined rigs:

VHF/UHF:

Antennas:

  • LDG S9v31 vertical
  • Longwire connected to an Icom AH-3 tuner
  • Homemade OCF dipole in an inverted vee
  • Random lenghts of wire and dipoles for field use

Other peripherals worth mentioning:
